    That's one way to get people to watch women's basketball.

    That's also a terrible job of editing that page. Need to get one line back in the story and you clean up two widows and make the whole page look better.

    I don't even know what that means ... I mean, um, I do know, but in the basketball sense I first thought of double-dribbles. Which would also be a strange thing to put in a headline.

    Yeah, I've never heard of double-doubles being referred to as double Ds.

    When I was first copy-editing at my school paper, I'd always complain to the sports editor about the use of "double-double" in basketball stories. I thought it always sounded like they were making a order at In-N-Out.
